One of the highlights of the upcoming edition of Première Vision Paris to be held September 19-21 in Paris will be the development of a transversal manufacturing offer to meet the needs of changing markets seeking complementary and more diversified sourcing solutions: near-shore, volume and specialised sourcing.

Visitors to the Premiere Vision Leather (PVL) show will find a broadened offer in hall 3, which includes the leather goods and footwear segments. ‘Bag & Shoe Manufacturing’ is a new space for manufacturers of footwear and leather goods, which complements the collections of exhibiting tanners and manufacturers of technical components. A selection of manufacturers and contractors will offer solutions in terms of techniques and know-how for non-specialised fashion brands looking for partners to develop their collections of bags, small leather goods and footwear.

The upcoming September edition of PVL will also host the ‘Bag & Shoe Elements’ fashion area; launched last February in the Première Vision Leather Trends Gallery, it provides a 360° view of materials and technical components for leather goods and footwear collections.

A new programme of roundtable talks is also scheduled during the three-day leather show. Consultant, footwear designer and IFM (French Fashion Institute) Professor Nathalie Elharrar will share her experiences, and propose development directions for successful footwear collections through three different conferences: ‘Innovation – the footwear industry and the 3D revolution’, ‘Consulting – optimising the customer/supplier relationship to build the right shoe collections, and ‘Know-how – the process of manufacturing a shoe collection, production techniques, pitfalls to avoid’.

Premiere Vision Leather will take place September 19-21 in hall 3, Paris Nord Villepinte Exhibition Park, Paris.
